There’s no logical reason for this mental assumption, just a post hoc of mine. I know 5 INFPs well, all of whom have pursued journalism, writing books, or blogging (or a combo of those). Odd coincidence?
I thought it was just me running into this, then I mentioned it an INTJ friend of mine. When I told her about it I got a vehement ”yes! that! that happens so much!” She worked across from an INTP and would try to engage him. She said she eventually found an area of knowledge he enjoyed going into detail on and would ping him on that whenever she felt like starting up a conversation. For INxJs most things connect to a lot of other things, so if we mention something, we want to go into

I was ignoring packing. Too much energy is required to pack things. Just doesn’t sound enjoyable. Then my current landlord was being an ass. Ben (INTJ) was a sweet heart with helping me. It’s funny when I seem like the grumpy T and he’s the chipper F. (Also, thanks for the wishes! <3 you guys. Still on the look :/ )
